There's a flange on one side of the steering ball ends. Compare that to the illustration on the setup sheet - I run the flange down which is pretty much what all setups have. Flange down is bump steer up and flange up is bump steer down.

Default Unsolder Motor Connections?

This may be a dumb question - certainly won't be my last one LOL...

When you guys work on your motor, taking it apart to clean it or replace bearings or whatever, do you typically unsolder the wires and then resolder when you are done or leave them connected and work around them?

Its easiest to un soldier it and clean it ... just dont heat up the tabs on the motor too much.

I swapped a front bearing between rounds a couple weeks ago and did not Unsolder the motor. Just worked around it.

Most times sure I'll unsolder it. It takes longer to setup the soldering station and let it heat up/cool down than it does to do the actuAl soldering.

Sometimes if I'm working in my diffs I'm lazy and just leave it soldered in there flopping around...

I just wanted to say that I took the recommendations of a few guys on here and put a new Hobbywing SCT PRO combo in the truck. Ran it last night for the first time at our local races and couldn't be happier. I had it geared with a 14t pinion and did not temp over 130 on the motor and 120 on the ESC. The power and smooth delivery of it made for a very fun night. Anyone on the fence about a motor and speedo for their trucks should not over look this combo.

Well let's see. I checked on Amain yesterday evening and they were backordered. I checked on Horizon this moring, still backordered. Hmm. Nice to see that Amain got the rod ends back. Just wondering how they have them again and Horizon doesn't. Thanks Walmart. That's how I feel Amain is. The Walmart of online RC.

He had some Jato ends lying around and tried them . They worked so good that I had him do my truck for me too .
